In case you’ve ever been confused about the technical differences between rattan, wicker, and caning, I recently find out all the finer points of the material. Wicker can be made from any flexible plant stem, but rattan is the most common you will find in furniture design. Caning is the process of splitting this stem and weaving it in the classic openwork pattern you’ll find in this roundup. I love cane furniture, especially when combined with more contemporary furniture silhouettes. As I shared in my trend forecast, I’m predicting caned furniture will be huge this year, especially after a couple of years full of rattan. The more intricate pattern of caning brings a classic element to modern furniture and decor, and I’m seeing it in spring collections everywhere. Find all my favorite cane furniture below!
